For a more natural submarining experience...
A tourist is fitted in to single-person armor-glass
at the surface. This capsule is engineered to
crushing depths while giving an unobstructed view
The capsule resembles a human-sized torpedo.
A sperm whale swims to the
loading point, receiving
payment a vat of fresh krill. The tourist in capsule is
tethered to the nose of the sperm whale via a form-
Floodlights attached to the capsule ensure that the
can see the ocean fade into blackness and helps the
sperm whale navigate the depths.
The whale begins its dive...doing what whales do.
Two hours later, the whale returns to the loading
receives another vat of krill, the amount dependent
depth and duration of the dive.
Humpbacks, not sperms ...
